So VERY close!

September 20, 2016

I am beginning to understand more and more the disappearance of time that teachers often discuss. Once the week has begun and one lesson slides into the next – those 55 minutes are the shortest you have ever experienced {unless you’re under prepared…then those minutes are gaping chasms of time!}. Then before you know it the 6 lessons of the day are done, recess/lunch has been hastily eaten and you’re dismissing students to head home, then quickly sorting out the hastily gathered collection of worksheets/books and heading for the staff meeting.

I know this insight is nothing new to an already experienced teacher… but to anyone new to any job – well the realities dawn on you – until suddenly you see it clearly… just what all my teacher friends and family members have talked about for years.
It would be much the same for anyone entering a hospitality field of employment – that environment I know so well.


Anyway – I am now 4 weeks into this placement and have only 2 days to go.

Which means that I am on the very CUSP of finishing my uni degree.


As in…. no more courses, assignments or lectures.


I can hardly believe it really.

Here on the blog I have used the tag “Uni” to show that I have chatted about Uni around 55 times. And those are the times that I have remember to do the tag thingo’s.

It has been a big part of my life.

I want to write more on my experience at Uni, but another time.

Now though, I am just going to sit and revel in the fact that time is slipping by and very soon I will be a graduate teacher, having gained a UNIVERSITY DEGREE! Something I never ever, ever, ever ever ever imagined I would a) do and b) complete.

And I am going to celebrate. A dinner out and a lovely bottle of wine.
